2014 Kia Forte EX: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 4, 2013

2014 Kia Forte EX

During August our Kia Forte EX added nearly 1,600 miles to the clock. Although plenty of clogged commuting miles are still obviously part of its work duties, a fair measure of open freeway cruising helped boost our Forte's average fuel economy to an even 27 mpg, just a single mpg off the EPA's combined estimate.

Worst Fill MPG: 20.3
Best Fill MPG: 35.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 27.0
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (24 City / 36 Highway)
Best Range: 309.4
Current Odometer: 4,869
